Introduction

There is nothing better than bringing home a brand new puppy, knowing you get a faithful companion for years to come. Dogs are always there, whether you want to play, nap, eat, or even cry a little. It's no wonder that when it comes to naming them, many freeze up. What happens if you choose the wrong name? Will you regret the decision, or use a nickname to make it better? The good news is sometimes you know how long the name should be, in this case eight letters. And that is a starting point. Here are some ideas you can use.

Best 8-Letter Dog Name Considerations

Obviously, choosing a name for your new best friend is going to take a little time, or at least it should. Rushing into any names that quickly come to mind can result in clichés, poor name ideas, or even just the wrong name for the dog in general. For instance, say your dog is very outgoing and friendly, but the name suggests a hostile and territorial nature. Although it could just be considered ironic, the joke may easily get lost along the way. To increase your chances of selecting the right name, take your time and really get to know your new pet. Perhaps he really enjoys tennis balls above all other toys. Maybe things that squeak intrigue him, like that funny hamburger squeak toy you got him as a joke. Or maybe the dog gets his kicks from napping all day, much like a cat would. It would make him lazy, perpetually tired, and certainly laid back. All of this information is more valuable than anything you could come up with on the spot, because it helps you tailor the name according to the dog's likes. You could try naming a dog after his favorite food, game, or other activity.
